Tools Required:

  • Squeegee (Included)
  • Spray bottle
  • Liquid soap
  • Terry cloth or towel

 

First remove any and all emblems including the Ford Oval emblem and any other emblem that your   specific model came with. Also remove your license plate.

Next, use rubbing alcohol to wash all wax and dirt from the surface where the decklid panel will be installed.

Make a soapy solution of by combining three to four drops of dish washing detergent with warm water.

Spray the solution over the decklid area where the new vinyl overlay will be installed.

Once the area is saturated, start with one section at a time and peel off the paper backing material from the black vinyl.

Align the vinyl in place and use a squeegee to apply it to the vehicle.  Work from the center of the vinyl to the edges, slowly pushing any air bubbles and excess solution out from under the decal. Please be patient with this procedure. It may take several minutes for the vinyl to finally adhere. Repeat this procedure for the other two sections and your done!

Use your terry cloth towel to wipe off any excess solution from your Stang.

Installing The Mach 1 Chin Spoiler On Your 1999-2004 Mustang

Our latest write-up goes over the process of installing a Mach 1 style chin spoiler on a 1999-2004 Mustang. StangMods carries high quality ABS plastic Mach 1 style lip spoilers with an OEM style textured finish. Not the glossy finish many aftermarket companies sell. Each of our chin spoiler kits comes included with push pin fasteners for a tight fit. This chin spoiler will give the front of your 99-04 Mustang a clean yet sporty look. You can find our chin spoilers for 99-04 here – http://www.stangmods.com/Mustang-Chin-Spoiler-for-99-04-p/00084.htm and the same chin spoiler for 96-98 Mustangs here – http://www.stangmods.com/Mustang-Chin-Spoiler-for-94-98-Mustangs-p/00542.htm

Tools Required:

  • Duct Tape
  • Push Pin Fasteners
  • Drill
  • 1/4″ Drill Bit

First start off by securing the vehicle on a level surface. Make sure the car is in gear and the parking brake is engaged.

Raise the front of the car so that you may have adequate space to work underneath the front bumper.

Mock fit the chin spoiler to the front bumper. It is easier if two people are handling the chin spoiler.

When you get the spoiler positioned to your liking, use duct tape to secure it to the bumper. (Tape will be removed later)

Drill ¼” holes into the bottom of the front bumper at each Chin Spoiler screw location.

Finally, insert pushpin fasteners into the holes on the bumper to secure the chin spoiler.

The last step is to remove the duct tape you used earlier to secure the chin spoiler to the bumper.

This completes the installation process.
